So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures. After all, you have not yet reached the point of sweating blood in your opposition to sin. Hebrews 12:3-4 TPT
Jesus had a goal, to overcome sin, take it on Himself and become a sacrifice for all sin so that we would no longer be separated from fellowship with God. He went through all of that for you and me. He never gave up. Never quit His mission. He did it for every person on the face of the earth, born and unborn, those who would receive Him and those who would deny Him. Those who would choose to do their own thing and those who would pick up their own cross and follow Him.
We think our life is over when someone unfriend’s us on social media. We get so caught up in the trivial things that we forget our purpose on the earth. And what is that purpose? Love. To be a light in the darkness. To love where there is none. Not as men love, but as God loves.
It’s easy to go to church and love those who love us, but Jesus didn’t call us to church. He called us to Love out there, in the world. We’ve become soft. Perhaps there is a reason behind the closing down of churches the past few months. We’re no longer relying on others to make us feel good about God, we are seeking to know God on our own.
Love in it’s very essence is active. It doesn’t sit idly by when there are things to do. They feed the hungry. They heal the sick. They raise the dead. They’re unafraid of failure, for they know that Love wins every time. It knows that when evil is present, love conquers all.
Where Love goes, it changes the atmosphere so that faith can grow. It causes people to hunger for truth. If you want to be a difference maker, let Love have it’s final work in you.
